Fractional order and BICO disturbance observers for a run

Jan 01, 2012 Grinding mill circuits are hard to control due to poor plant models, large external disturbances, uncertainties from internal couplings, and process variables that are difficult to measure. This paper proposes a novel fractional order disturbance observer (FO-DOB) for a run-of-mine (ROM) ore milling circuit.

Abstract It is difficult in run-of-mine (ROM) milling circuits to control the particle size of the product and other important variables because the ore fed to the mill also acts as the main grinding medium.

Mineral processing

Crushing and grinding are the two primary comminution processes. Crushing is normally carried out on "run-of-mine" ore, while grinding (normally carried out after crushing) may be conducted on dry or slurried material. In comminution, the size reduction of particles is done by three types of forces: compression, impact and attrition.

Mill (grinding)

A mill is a device that breaks solid materials into smaller pieces by grinding, crushing, or cutting. Such comminution is an important unit operation in many processes.There are many different types of mills and many types of materials processed in them.
